The Production Room was founded in 1995 as one of the first full time digital commercial recording facilties on the central coast of California. We started with 4 stereo tracks, 16 mb of ram and a 250 mb hard drive. A lot has happened since then. Today we're focusing on ways to serve clients who are creating web based media content. This includes strategic planning to integrate the benefits of traditional media, web design and IT solutions into new programs produced especially for on-line consumers. Join in the conversation. Throw rocks at glass houses. Share your vision of the future. This is the most progressive time in the media arts since Johannes Gutenburg invented movable type!

In the News -

Just a few headlines and a tribute to Christopher Glenn, the CBS news voice who anchored "In The News" on Saturday kids programming from 1971 to 1986.

Obama Wins Mississippi: (Thank you God for the Boston Globe!)

And today, this was in my email from Barack Obama:

"Over the weekend, an aide to Senator Clinton attempted to diminish the overwhelming number of contests we've won by referring to places we've prevailed as "boutique" states and our supporters as the "latte-sipping crowd."

I'm just sippin' my latte and celebrating another win. Bet there are a lot of Starbucks in Mississippi. Just keep talking to us like we're all stupid. Hillary What's Her Name just slipped on her banana peel politics again.

Hillary Clinton now has more than one Democrat Alpha male supporter who likes to party with women he isn't married to. I don't care, but this seems to make a big difference here in America. Fortunately, Elliot Spitzer was wearing an American flag lapel pin as he publicly announced that he had disgraced himself. It's one thing to be immoral, quite another to be unpatriotic while you're being immoral.

Raymond McInnis sent me a lot of info. on Obama v. Clinton from up In Washington State today. Thanks Ray. I'm looking forward to checking it out and I'll have more on the campaign later.

Tom Lasorda is 80. He retired as Manager of the LA Dodgers in 1996. Today, Tommy was back on the field as the Dodger Skipper for a pre-season game against the Marlins.
Tommy will never die. And I'll have another helping of lasagna.

Timothy Jay is a PHD who is an expert on cursing in America. He was interviewed via ISDN for the BBC from The Production Room studio in Santa Barbara on Monday. The BBC program "Word of Mouth" interviewed Dr. Jay about the peculiar differences in regulating broadcast speech in America and in the UK. It was Fuc*in' Brilliant!
I'll post a link when I get one.

News From Gilligan's Island:

My friend Ed Ryba forwards the latest news from Idaho about former Gilligan's Island star, Dawn Wells (Marianne). Seems there's more than one way to live out your life on an uncharted desert isle. So how does a three hour cruise from Hawaii reach Jamaica?
Ironically, Gilligan creator Sherwood Shwartz just got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. What was HE smoking ?

Here in Santa Burbia, some comments on "Citizen McCaw" from the LA Times and my as yet un-met colleague at I'm Not One to Blog...

Hey George, Let's do latte!

* * * * *

And Finally, an overdue nod to Craig Smith who not only covered the premiere of Citizen McCaw, he moderated the Q & A on stage at the Arlington Theater Premiere.

Bon Appetit, Con Mucho Gusto!

john, you'll love this justin raimondo piece on the "fall" of admiral fallon:

another here, from asia tmes:

my question: will fallon support obama? and will it do any good?

the latest, ferraro a loose cannon?

the gist of the speculation on olbermann last night was that ferraro was an attack dog for hillary in the PA primary, to appeal the the redneck element that evidently makes up that state's population outside of philly and pittsburgh.

John Quimby said...

I think the speculation on Ferarro could be right. This might have been calculated. The other possibility is that she IS a redneck.

Hillary's campaign hasn't shown itself to be all that clever, so I'd leave plenty of room for doubt.
